Published

Time and time again conservatives have heard the charge by liberals that the GOP isn’t diverse enough, that the vast majority of office holders and candidates are older white men. The insinuation, of course, is that the Republican Party is somehow racist or exclusionary to minorities.

Well, that couldn’t be farther from the truth, as is demonstrated by the six black women who are running for Congress in the November midterm elections.

Here’s a brief introduction to these extraordinary ladies.

Prior to that she served as mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah from 2010-2014. She defeated her Democratic opponent Doug Owens twice in 2014 and 2016 to win her second term. The Hill reported that her challenger Democrat Ben McAdams is leading her in the polls by six points as of October 2018.

Aja Smith — Running for California’s 41st District

Aja Smith grew up in Moreno Valley, Calif., raised by both her mother and grandmother who worked long hours as nurses, providing for her and ensuring she had every opportunity that her peers had, according to Smith. Both of Aja’s grandparents served in the U.S. Military. Her grandfather was a veteran of WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. Her great uncle was a Tuskegee Airman pilot. In 2002, Smith joined the United States Air Force Reserve. In 2007, she was deployed to Qatar and stationed at Al-Udeid Air Force Base during Operation Enduring Freedom. If elected, Smith would become the first African-American female Republican to serve in Congress from California.

Virginia Fuller — Running for Florida’s 5th District

Virginia Fuller, a registered nurse by trade immigrated to the United States in 1976, gaining her citizenship in 2000. For nearly 38 years she’s lived in California, but now a happily transplanted Floridian for the last two years, according to Fuller. In 1989, she established and operated two pediatric care facilities. One was a 24-hour Emergency Shelter Home for abused and neglected children located in Oakland, Calif. The other was an Extended Nursing Care Facility in Richmond, Calif. licensed by the State Health Department.

Liz Matory — Running for Maryland’s 2nd Congressional District

Liz Matory is a small business owner and author of ‘Born Again Republican,’ the book about what she learned after leaving the Democrat Party, connecting with voters as an independent and discovering that she is a conservative. Matory has said that she is on a mission to encourage more people to learn the truth about the democrat’s agenda to diminish the Republic and degrade the power of the voters through partisan gerrymandering. After running for Congress in 2016, she became very active in party building efforts across the state with the Maryland Federation of Republican Women and the Maryland Republican Party.

Jineea Butler — Running for New York’s 13th Congressional District

Jineea Butler, from Cherry Hill, New Jersey, is a social worker in her day job and who has a true heart for her community. Butler started a company called the Social Services of Hip Hop, a music program she introduced to New York City schools. She also created the Hip Hop Union nine years ago, claiming it has had both a nation and international impact.

Charlotte Bergmann — Running for Tennessee’s 9th Congressional District

Bermann was born and raised in the historic city of Memphis, Tennessee and describes herself as a devout follower of Jesus Christ. She formerly worked for FedEx, where she retired in 2000. During her time with the company she worked as a Technology Project Manager. She now owns and operates a small family business. One of the things she plans on doing if she gets sent to Congress is to push legislation that will insure healthcare is affordable and is the responsibility of patients and their doctors without intervention from the government. She also stated she is a proud supporter of President Donald Trump.

The next time the left tries to say the GOP isn’t diverse, pull this out and show them that’s simply not the truth.

Trump Administration Set to Cut Food Stamp Benefits for Nearly One Million People (Details)

Is this a big risk for Trump?

It’s probably a good bet to say that most people on food stamps didn’t vote for Donald Trump in 2016 and won’t vote for him in 2020. Some people have yet to figure out that Democrat politicians are insistent on keeping people in their current economic positions for the entirety of their lives, handing out free stuff in order to remain in office. Therefore, the administration isn’t exactly taking a big risk by gutting the program. Here’s the plan, via The Hill: The Trump administration is set to announce a plan that would cut food stamp benefits for approximately 750,000 people, Bloomberg News reported on Tuesday. The plan, which is scheduled to be announced Wednesday, will make it more difficult for states to gain waivers from a requirement that beneficiaries of food stamps work or are enrolled in a vocational training program, according to Bloomberg, which cited sources familiar with the matter. Continued: The work or vocational training requirement applies to recipients who are “able-bodied” or those who are not caring for a child under six years old. Under the current guidelines, states can receive a waver for work requirements for those receiving benefits from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), or its former name, food stamps, if its unemployment rate is at least 20 percent above the national rate, according to Bloomberg. To label Barack Obama “a conservative” is absolutely wild. Lefties are turning on Barry now because he’s had a few choice words for the likes of AOC, Bernie Sanders, and others, though, indirectly. It just goes to show that there is no low the left won’t stoop to tear down Republicans, conservatism, capitalism, and everything else that makes America great. Perspective: Democratic presidential candidates still can’t figure out how to talk about the most popular figure in…

Biden Goes On Record, Says He Will Not Appear As Witness In Senate Impeachment Trail

Will the GOP subpoena?

John Salvatore

The whole Ukraine/impeachment nonsense started because a whistleblower allegedly overheard President Trump demand that the nation’s leader investigate Joe and Hunter Biden and Burisma. As we’re all well aware, there is no evidence to support that notion. Joe Biden used his status as vice president, at the time, to ensure his ne’er-do-well son secured a solid gig. In fact, Joe even interfered on a number of occasions. Even though his whole fiasco circles the Biden’s in a way that is undeniable, the 2020 Democrat presidential nominee is saying he will not appear as a witness in the Senate. Is he scared? WATCH: [email protected] tells @pdoocy he will not appear voluntarily if called as a witness in Senate impeachment trial, “No I’m not going to let them take their eye off the ball. The President is the one who has committed impeachable crimes and I’m not going to let him divert from that.” https://twitter.com/WardDPatrick/status/1202376427083051008?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1202376427083051008&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F04%2Fjoe-biden-says-he-wont-appear-voluntarily-if-called-as-a-witness-in-senate-impeachment-trial%2F Reactions: I hear Hunter has indicated he will gladly testify as an expert witness for $50,000 a month. https://twitter.com/PostTweeter/status/1202380595185278984?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1202380595185278984&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F04%2Fjoe-biden-says-he-wont-appear-voluntarily-if-called-as-a-witness-in-senate-impeachment-trial%2F so Biden thinks Trump should agree with everything the Dems want or it’s obstruction of justice, but it’s not if he doesn’t want to. https://twitter.com/nanabooboo19/status/1202384158233747457?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1202384158233747457&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F04%2Fjoe-biden-says-he-wont-appear-voluntarily-if-called-as-a-witness-in-senate-impeachment-trial%2F What is Joe Biden scared of?

If the Senate calls him, he must appear and take the 5th if he wants but he has no present executive privilege to even challenge a subpoena. https://twitter.com/JustChattingUp/status/1202380701431144448?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1202380701431144448&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F04%2Fjoe-biden-says-he-wont-appear-voluntarily-if-called-as-a-witness-in-senate-impeachment-trial%2F Biden is using the Impeachment process for personal political gain. https://twitter.com/RilsRislan/status/1202376917178937344?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1202376917178937344&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F04%2Fjoe-biden-says-he-wont-appear-voluntarily-if-called-as-a-witness-in-senate-impeachment-trial%2F “Mr Biden do you welcome hearsay evidence for grounds to impeach you during a possible Biden presidency?” How hard is it to ask Biden or any Democrat candidate that question? https://twitter.com/dir_allen/status/1202379050913808385?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1202379050913808385&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F04%2Fjoe-biden-says-he-wont-appear-voluntarily-if-called-as-a-witness-in-senate-impeachment-trial%2F Biden…
